2A News (Second Amendment News)

Litigation, Enemies, NRA

Either the news was slow this week, or I am.

Patriots Day is a week away. Celebrate!


  • Cowlitz County Superior Court Judge Gary Bashor ruled that Washington’s ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds violates both the Washington state and U.S. constitutions, and issued an immediate injunction to stop the state from enforcing the ban. The state Supreme Court then issued a stay on the injunction during the appeals process.
  • A former assistant principal at an elementary school who ignored warnings that a six-year-old was seen with a gun before he shot his teacher has been charged with felony child neglect.



  • Doctors. Still.
    • Physician interactions with the patient should arise from and be directed towards meeting their MEDICAL needs, be within the scope of the health professional’s expertise (usually none in this area), and contextually appropriate. Exceptions are made as described in Workman’s article. Otherwise, two words: Boundary Violation.
  • NRA’s “lawyer,” Bill Brewer.


The “leadership” is apparently proposing to convert the NRA from a nonprofit to a for-profit organization. That would be to make their corruption easier to get away with, since for-profits are subject to much less rigorous or transparent financial reporting requirements.

Not bright.

Classical portrait of a woman holding a brain with the caption "use it" overlaid, blending art with a motivational message.
  • The Clarion Ledger “newspaper” in Jackson, MS, recently reported that Jackson Police Chief Joseph Wade was concerned because half of the gunshot homicide victims in March had been shot multiple times. The article claimed that Wade said officers are confiscating assault rifles, guns with Glock switches and guns with “extended clips and barrels on the end.” Barrels on the end. Well where would you expect the barrel to be? In the middle? I suspect the error was actually made by the writer, one Pam Dankins.
  • Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

More guns, less crime.

  • About a year ago, Santa Rosa County (FL) Sheriff Bob Johnson sparked controversy by suggesting homeowners should shoot intruders to save taxpayer money.
    • Last week Sheriff Johnson said, “Since that press conference we haven’t had any home invasions and it’s been over a year so it’s kind of odd.”

The Only Ones

  • In Illinois, retired correctional officers and courthouse deputies are having problems getting the state to issue them CCW licenses. Well, welcome to the party, pals. FYI, retired officers are…. citizens.
  • Breaux Bridge (LA) Police Chief Albert “Buz” LeBlanc was hospitalized and released after accidentally shooting himself in the leg last week during his annual qualification at the St. Martin Parish firing range in St. Martinville. No word on disciplinary actions.
  • Former Jackson, MS police officer now wanted on murder charge. He is now in custody after being chased into Louisiana, where the cajun cops stopped him.
  • Sailing backwards.


  • Just as the Founding Fathers intended.

Tactics & Stuff

Industry News

  • The Savage Arms rimfire plant in Lakefield, Ontario, Canada is expanding in the coming months in order to build new rimfire lever-action rifles and provide a new centerfire production line in Canada.


  • Freedom Munitions is now making its own .223 Remington cartridge cases. Freedom has been manufacturing cases for various pistol calibers for some time.
  • Doubletap Ammunition’s SnakeShot™ handgun ammo uses #9 birdshot – not in a capsule – so it does not take the rifling or spin to produce centrifugal spread, therefore giving tighter patterns. But under the shot is a lightweight hardcast full wadcutter bullet made to penetrate and cut into the intended target. That bullet sort of defeats the purpose of using a shot load so as not to perforate your barn. Around $30-32 per box of 20 in the usual revolver calibers, or $50 for the .500 S&W.
